Chesapeake Light Craft

Chesapeake Light Craft’s mission is to help people build boats. Founded in 1991, CLC has shipped more than 30,000 wooden boat kits to more than 70 countries. Specializing in the amateur boatbuilder, CLC offers kits and plans for a huge variety of smallcraft that are easy-to-build, plus all of the lumber, hardware and supplies unique to boatbuilders. The range includes kayaks, canoes, dinghies, skiffs, rowing craft, and sailboats from 8 to 31 feet, and now a Teardrop Camper kit. Educational programs are a growing facet of CLC’s broad expertise. CLC develops and leads boatbuilding classes all over the world.
